The ONE-MINUTE AQUINAS By Kevin Vost, Psy. D., Sophia Publishing, $19.95

Thomas Aquinas’ Summa Theologica is universally accepted as one of the greatest books ever written, but just try to read it. Even at 1,500,000 words (3000 pages) it was still unfinished at his death at 49. Vost’s simplified question and answer format delivers the heart of Aquinas’ philosophy in easy to understand language.  Aquinas’  “Five Ways To Prove The Existence Of God” and answers to questions on marriage, faith, hope and charity are clearly explained in language accessible to all readers. Read it straight through or simply look for the answer you seek.


THE CORSICAN CAPER By Peter Mayle, Knopf, $23.95

Provence’s food, wine, scenery and atmosphere are threatened by the greedy Russian tycoon Oleg Vronsky who, among other desires, lusts after the mansion of billionaire Francis Reboul and will stop at nothing to make it his. Reboul’s visiting friend Sam Levitt has come to his aid before and now develops a plan to thwart the Russian’s ambitions. There is a definite smell of death in the air and Sam must use all his resources to protect Reboul. In the end, food and wine prevail.
